Baby Doll

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Shelton Theater celebrates 25 years in San Francisco with the Bay Area premiere of Tennessee Williams black comedy play Baby Doll newly adapted by Emily Mann and Pierre Laville. The story follows a virgin child bride and her alcoholic husband into a revenge plot of seduction and justice. The film was created at the height of Williams genius and reveals the master storyteller’s vision of seduction, empathy, and cruelty in the land of the Deep South. This is the chance to see a new Williams play at the height of his career; Baby Doll based on the 1956 film of the same name received scathing criticism from religious leaders and film critics who were outraged by the lurid tale of the virgin child bride and her smarmy lover. Filmmaker Truffaut called the work “fascinating.” Ultimately Baby Doll is a triumph over traditional female roles. This new adaptation for the stage is simmering in seduction and comedy.

Directed by Bay Area legend Will Marchetti and designed by Steve Coleman with Matt Shelton, Briana Walsh, Benoit Monin, and Jennifer Proctor.
